How do trans fatty acids affect egg quality and fertility in women?

Asked 2 years ago

Hi, I'm worried that my diet may be contributing to my anovulation and struggle with fertility. I had a look at my diet and noticed that a lot of it has trans fat. Could this be the problem?

Research has shown that there is a link between the number of trans fatty acids a woman consumes and infertility. Every extra four grams of trans fatty acid taken in an 1800 calorie-a-day diet, increases the risk of developing ovulatory infertility by 73%. This means that the woman may experience irregular ovulation or problems with the quality of her eggs, which would in turn make it harder for her to conceive.
